The Campaign For DA

9.30.2016

Random Friday Morning Thoughts



  • Trump fans are mad that the media is talking about him "calling a woman fat twenty years ago." There's some merit to that. So what does Trump do at 4:30 this morning? He keeps the story alive: 
  • And does he really want me to "check out [her] sex tape"?
  • Hillary had a little "shimmy" during the debate the other night (which led to a brilliant Hillary Shimmy video). But no shimmy will ever beat the greatest shimmy in the history of ever:
  • We used to have an Anti-Animated GIF guy in the comments who would lose his mind if I ever posted one. I miss him. 
  • I mentioned Judge Meyers on the Court of Criminal Appeals using the phrase "all the feels" in an opinion last week, but I completely missed something else he wrote in a dissenting opinion. He went off -- and I do mean went off -- on all the other judges on the court for, in essence, only providing justice to the Gov. Perrys and Tom Delays of the world -- two people the court had recently ruled in favor of. But if you are a nobody, Meyers wrote, the other judges will write 40 pages to rule against you. 
  • The majority opinion and Meyers' opinion's appendix detail the facts of the case which actually involved Montague County. It includes a who's who of the Montague Justice system and some Wise County names are big players. 
  • Bridgeport played a high school football game last night. I'm guessing they probably have before, but is that possibly the first Thursday night game for the school ever? And another fun fact: They played Benbrook Middle-High School. Yep, "middle-high."  That's even more unstable than playing high school football on Thursday. 
  • Hey, I basically predicted that Dez would be out for the year with the knee injury and, based upon the circus at The Star, I wouldn't rule that out from being the actual prognosis.
  • The Tarrant County DA's office has decided to seek the death penalty in a case from April where a guy allegedly dumped his better half off of a bridge over Lake Worth.  I hate the image  of two or three prosecutors sitting in a room deciding whether someone should die but I don't know how I would change the law. Sure, they don't have the absolute power to kill someone (they have to go through a jury) but they do make a literal life or death decision because they could guarantee the State doesn't kill him. 
  • I thought the Texas Lottery was faltering. Officials announced there have been a record $5 billion in tickets sold this year.
  • Speaking of feeling uncomfortable, put the following new release on the list as well. There's just something odd about government teaching us "how" to interact with government. (And if there is anything in the "how" that says we should be "responsive to officers questions", I'll go nuts.)

  •                                 
  • There was a minor viral video of a guy briefly losing the engagement ring while proposing in the crowd during a Yankees game. The video didn't do much for me, but I did smile when I first heard the TV guy quickly referencing what he was seeing as being "like a lost and found in a border town" with a guy "looking for a diamond ring." But he ruined the moment by (1) referencing that he was actually quoting lyrics -- hey, buddy, just leave it hanging out there, and (2) saying his "buddy Kix Brooks wrote" the song.

"...educate our children on how to interact with law enforcement when that are stopped for a traffic violation or detained."

Dear ALL CAPS guy or girl

This is Barry Green's blog, does that help?

Lower your shields Spock, while we beam some logic aboard.
While Mr. Green's opinions are at times offensive to some he always plays both sides of the coin.
You can't change people by anonymously yelling in all cap's.
I'd dare say you can't change anybody's opinion about much until you calm down.
It's just words here; conjecture, prevarication, regalement and pontification not something to tempt a stroke over.

Settle down, everything will be OK...

Hilliary is just another lying cheating politician but I like her anyway..she is no worse than any of the others. I thought it was a cute shimmy...I have done them plenty in my days...she does have a playful side that is entertaining and she is very intelligent...I don't care what other people say...you gotta give her credit for where she is in life compared to the rest of us...you go girl! I don't waste my time voting though since Texas always goes red anyway.

I'm Hispanic, so, it wasn't racist to call her fat, she makes her living through her beauty and then is shocked when she is objectified, ok....and don't let the fact that she was involved in a murder get in the way of anything......

There are numerous "middle-high" schools in Texas. There are still "elementary-middle-high" schools in Texas. What is unstable about having a middle school and a high school share the same campus? Saves money...common cafeteria, bus routes, extracurricular spaces, etc.

For all you people who don't like the caps and think it is annoying. I think all your DOUBLE FAKE BS is worse. Stop already with the double fake. It' DUMB.

Trump needs to let go of the "Bill is a horn-dog." attack on Hillary. EVERYONE knows Hillary is the long-suffering wife of a horn-dog. I don't care what the marital arrangement is between Hillary and Bill because it's NONE OF MY BUSINESS. Trump needs to get off of how bad Bill is and keep letting people know about Crooked Hillary.

Trump made an EXCELLENT point during the debate when he pointed out, "You've been saying the same things for 30 years and done none of it." Trump should have followed up with the question, "Why should anyone believe you're going to do anything you're promising, in the next 4 years, since you've done none of it in the past 30 years?"




BTW...The ALL CAPS GUY, cracks me up. You people getting pissy about ALL CAPS, need to get over yourselves.

I once attended a function at which Phil Graham spent two hours telling us how bad Hillary Clinton's proposal for "socialized medicine" was. In 1993.

Now, tell me, do we now have something similar to what she has been working for since she was first lady, or not?

I'll save you the trouble (I know you're kind of dense): Yes, we do And we would not have it, because it would not have stayed in the national debate, if not for her and other Democrats. And in fact, her single-payer/withdraw from wages system would have been much more conservative than the marketplace system we have right now.

I don't like her, and I think John Kerry runs circles around her as Secretary of State, but she's helped get some things done. She also voted for your Patriot Act that the FBI had waiting in the wings after 9/11, and that conservatives have used to no end. She's like Obama--except for one or two progressive issues, she's just a female version of GWB, like Obama is a black Bush. For the life of me I don't know why y'all throw such a hissy fit about her.

It's good that you haven't come in here today singing Johnson's praises. Even you have to see what a screw ball that guy is now.
